god’s grace silences murmuring


We feel that when we are surrounded by a happy family no power should lawfully enter the charmed circle and strike down a loved one. If we end up disappointed in any of these areas–if bankruptcy or death, actually comes–the perverted instinct of the human heart is to cry out against God. But in the person who by grace has recognized God’s sovereignty, such murmuring is silenced; and instead, there is a bowing to the divine will and an acknowledgement that God has not afflicted us as sorely as we deserve.

The Sovereignty of God, A. W. Pink, page 204
